Step-by-Step To Christmas 2020: Step Three

STEP THREE: MAKING CARDS!
I made some progress with my Step-by-Step to Christmas Crafting this weekend. I’ve moved onto Step 3: Making Cards : )

And I began by making Cards with my new ‘Merry Gnoel’ Images.

Let me tell you how I made them. They were simple to make. And quick. It took me longer to paint the images than it did to put the Cards together.
I began by printing 2 sheets of the Images, with the Sentiments included, onto Smooth White Card. And I painted them loosely using Watercolour Paints.

Whilst the paint was drying, I printed 3 sheets of A4 Card - one each of ‘Fanciful’, ‘Billowy’ & 'Snowballs', all in ‘French Chateau’ from the French Country Colour Collection. And I cut them in half to create 6 A6 sized Card Bases.

Once my Images were dry, I secured them to my Card Bases, mounting them in slightly different ways. I added a Mini Bell or a Mini Snowball PomPom to their hats. And added Twine and a few Sequins to finish. The Bells are very cute. They tinkle when you pick up the Card!

I used 2 White A6 Card Blanks so I could use the remaining 2 Images.
You can find the 'Merry Gnoel' Images *here* in the Boutique.

8 Cards : )
